Why The Matte Film Coating Kit?
The Matte Film Coating Kit is a permanent nano ceramic coating for matte PPFs, wraps and decals. But why do I need a coating designed for film?
Stop Your Vinyl From Fading
Vinyl wraps and stripes are a great way to get that matte look without repainting your car. Problem is, they fade and crack over time due to UV/UVB exposure. If you want to keep your matte wrap’s fresh appearance for as long as possible, you’ll want to have it protected by the Matte Film Coating’s proprietary UV-inhibiting formula. It'll keep your color fresh and your surface healthy so you won't have to waste valuable time and money on a new wrap.
Keep Your Film Self-Healing
These days many vinyl wraps and PPFs come with unique self-healing properties. When exposed to a direct heat source, micro-marring or wash marks get filled in, erasing them entirely! But when you install a ceramic coating over a self-healing film, the coating takes up the space needed for self-healing, robbing your film of its rebounding qualities. Protecting your wrap shouldn't mean sacrificing self-healing, which is why we formulated Matte Film Coating for flexibility, allowing your film the room it needs to bounce back from blemishes of all kinds. You'll have the best of both worlds - a resistant coating and a self-healing film.
Resist Staining and Etching For Easy Cleaning
Say your vinyl wrap or PPF gets stained or etched – at least it wasn't the paint, right? But now your wrap's stained and etched, meaning you'll need to either get a new one or deal with it looking awful. How can you get your paint and your wrap protected at the same time? Matte Film Coating solves this problem with its durable, hydrophobic properties. Once installed, Matte Film Coating's hydrophobicity causes liquid contaminants to rest on the surface to prevent staining, while its tough barrier resists the etching caused by caked on contaminants. But it's not just protection you're getting - this hydrophobicity makes your wrap ridiculously easy to clean. Any contaminants on your surface will slide right off in a wash, saving your film from heavy duty scrubbing or harsh chemical cleaners.
Won't Gloss Matte
It's not just self-healing that standard ceramic coatings ruin on matte vinyl - they also turn your wrap's surface into a horrible, splotchy mess. To get your film protected without altering the finish, you'll want to use Matte Film Coating. Formulated without silicones or glossing agents, it smoothes out your matte's color, keeping it as fresh and consistently flat as the day you bought it.
How Does It Work?
Matte Film Coating forms a cross-linked bond with your matte film's thermoplastic surface, creating a highly durable, permanent barrier. Once bonded the coating will resist micro-marring and etching, inhibit UV rays, bead and sheet liquids, and preserve self-healing properties. Its no-filler formula will keep your matte's appearance and smooth out any inconsistencies.

1. Before applying Matte Film Coating, surface must be properly cleaned.
2. Spray Matte Film Coating Prep onto surface and remove with a microfiber cloth. This will allow Matte Film Coating to bond properly to the surface..
3. Wrap the suede cloth around the foam block applicator and apply ~10 drops of Matte Film Coating on the cloth in a line.
4. Start by applying Matte Film Coating in vertical lines down the panel. After you've covered your panel with vertical lines, go back and repeat with horizontal lines. This cross hatch pattern will ensure full coverage. Avoid getting the product in panel gaps.
5. Let product sit on surface for 2-3 minutes and then remove with a microfiber towel.
6. Repeat steps 4-5 on each panel until your entire vehicle is protected. Reapply several drops of Matte Film Coating on your applicator after a few panels.
7. After coating your entire vehicle, leave it undisturbed for one hour.
• Do NOT apply in direct sunlight. Do not allow this product to freeze during storage.
• If applied in temperatures less than 65-70 degrees the vehicle may need more flash time. In warmer, more arid climates Matte Film Coating will need less flash time.
• Keep vehicle completely dry between applications and for at least 1 hour after final application. After 1 hour the vehicle can be exposed to light rain without affecting the bonding process.
• Full cure will take 24-48 hours. After fully cured the surface will be noticeably glossier and the coating will be fully set.
• Avoid washing the vehicle with soap for 7 days after application.
• Keep bottle closed when not in use.
